Early CCM- Spotlight on Nancy Honeytree

*****

  

Another incredible blast from the past.  “Rattle Me, Shake Me.”  This is one of the best from one of CCMs greatest–Nancy Honeytree.  I think I can date this about 1974.

Of course, I hope that it blesses, and gives you another layer to our simple faith.  Honeytree was a definite force in the 70s, she ministered with a simplicity and wholeness that is a bit of an astringent to a fat and  jaded faith of her day.  I guess “freshness” would be the way I could describe her.  But you’ll quickly pick this up as you listen to her describe herself.  It is almost impossible to not like her music, and her “story.”

Honeytree is a jewel, she communicates musically on a different level.  Her lyrics are simple, but she has a momentum that carries her through walls of pride and conflict.  I hope that she blesses you deeply.

Early CCM: Spotlight on Evie

*****

“Clean Before My Lord.”  This is a song by Evie, c. 1975.  It carries potent memories, as she was a major artist in Contemporary Christian Music.  This particular song, “Clean Before My Lord,”  is just coming out of the “Jesus Movement“, and it carries an innocence and a clarity that is rare today.

I sincerely hope it will penetrate your heart, and bless you in that tender place.  This is my very first attempt of music on Broken Believers.  If you like it, hate it or just indifferent to it, please let me know with the “comment” function below.  Thanks.
